Working with Academia

At the heart of The National Commission for Human Rights (NCHR) lies a dedicated endeavor to instill human rights education across Pakistan. This initiative aligns with the NCHR Act 2012, Section 9(h), which emphasizes the spread of human rights literacy. Understanding the multifaceted nature of human rights education, NCHR’s strategy revolves around three core objectives: knowledge enhancement, value transformation, and action inspiration.

Human rights education, as conceptualized by NCHR, is a specialized endeavor demanding skilled trainers, facilitators, and educators. NCHR’s comprehensive plan unfolds systematically, targeting various educational levels to propagate human rights literacy. The initiative commences with universities, where NCHR has embarked on collaborative efforts. Notably, NCHR has signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with several leading universities across the country. Additionally, a significant milestone was achieved through a MoU with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Islamabad, signaling a concerted effort to broaden the scope of human rights education.

The approach extends beyond students to encompass faculty members and other stakeholders within the educational realm. Through a series of planned interventions, NCHR aims to sensitize and engage these actors in the noble cause of human rights education. By fostering partnerships, conducting follow-up meetings, and ensuring effective implementation, NCHR envisions a holistic transformation in the human rights landscape of Pakistan’s educational institutions.

In essence, NCHR’s Human Rights Education Initiative stands as a testament to its commitment to promoting a culture of respect, understanding, and advocacy for human rights. Through strategic planning, targeted interventions, and collaborative partnerships, NCHR endeavors to empower individuals with the knowledge, values, and motivation to champion human rights within their communities and beyond.
